From the bestselling author of the Ender Universe novels comes Orson Scott Card's TreasonLanik Mueller's birthright as heir to planet Treason's most powerful rulership will never be realized. He is a rad--radical regenerative. A freak among people who can regenerate injured flesh... and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. For, on a planet without hard metals--or the means of escape--iron is power in the race to build a spacecraft. Iron is the promise of freedom, which may never be fulfilled as Lanik uncovers a treacherous conspiracy beyond his imagination. Now charged with a mission of conquest--and exile--Lanik devises a bold and dangerous plan... a quest that may finally break the vicious chain of rivalry and bloodshed that enslaves the people of Treason as the Offworld never could.
